On this date, there was a meeting at the Freemasons Tavern in London, England. This meeting laid the plans to create the Football Association, but also the first set of common rules to be regulate soccer. While there were 11 teams that found the rules to be fair and just, one team disagreed on some of the rules that were being put forth. The team that contradicted so heavily, they left and later made the Rugby Football Union. So, under the charge of Ebenezer Cobb Morley soccer began.
